University of Waterloo Neodymium-60 Anniversary Project
We are inviting everyone with a connection to the University of Waterloo to design a square tile that showcases the University of Waterloo and includes the symbol Nd-60 for the university’s neodymium (atomic number 60) anniversary. We will create a mosaic of science and art for a public display on campus. The deadline is July 1, 2017. See the Neodymium-60 Anniversary Project webpage for more details.
